The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The BMTAuto Team Coordinators are under the direct supervision of the BMT Support Staff Supervisor. Working independently, they schedule all patient and donor appointments on an identified care team, for services performed by or at the request of the BMT medical, nursing and ancillary services staff, in accordance with clinical practice and research objectives. Effective communication with various constituents including but not limited to patients, their families, physicians, nurses, co-workers and other departments/laboratories is required. At times they direct the work of others.
This individual works with considerable independence and is expected to be pro-active and to use strategic thinking and sound judgment to accomplish their duties. They must keep abreast of changes in protocols and procedures related to patient care, in order to efficiently carry out their daily duties. This position must also maintain familiarity with the University of Washington Medical Center patient intake/flow processes to facilitate scheduling of patient visits occurring outside of the Alliance Clinics.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
